1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My Ridiculously Amazing Baby Gifts from Superhooker on: September 12, 2010 05:27:39 PM
So my craftster friend Superhooker apparently decided she didn't need to have a life outside of knitting for a few months... the result was this awesomely amazing baby gift package I received over the weekend. My heart is still jumping with joy over the beautifully knitted items she made for my little Katie (who is arriving in about 2 months)!  I've already gushed to her in a thank you note so I'll try to keep that to a minimum here and just share the lovely knitted goodies Superhooker so lovingly created.

A beautiful jacket and hat set that will be perfect for our Michigan winters - I'm super excited about this one! The colors remind me of the amazing Michigan fall colors and the yarn is so, so soft.

A beautiful cardigan in a wonderfully soft brown yarn. I love my girly clothes for Katie, but I love that this is a neutral color for those days when I just can't take any more pink.  Wink

An adorable pink shrug - I love the detail on the back! I anticipate that this will be a frequently worn item in her wardrobe. It looks perfect for layering over a onesie.  Wink

These adorable pieces that will be perfect for this spring! Love the pink buttons with the green yarn (and the pattern, this piece is just TOO CUTE!), and the green/white cardigan is so cheery! I picture Katie at an easter egg hunt wearing this cardigan.

Two of the most adorable baby knit sets you will ever see. I think the cream tank and booties may be Katie's coming-home-from-the-hospital outfit.  Grin  And the green hat and socks are so frickin' cute in person!!!

A gorgeous piece in the most amazing yarn - I love the colors in this!

A super-cute cardigan that is one of my favorites. I had to get my hand in there so you can appreciate the teeny-tiny-ness of this cutie!

This beautiful pink and yellow blanket - I love the heart detail in the corner! This one is going to the hospital for me and Katie to enjoy during our first couple of days together. I think it will be perfect for cuddling under during our nursing sessions.

And an amazing blanket in the perfect colors! I love that it has some pink in it to keep it girly but also has some strong masculine colors in it, too. It's the perfect blanket for our nursery - see how well it fits in?

Superhooker, like I told you already, your generosity completely overwhelmed me (in a good way!) and I can't even begin to thank you for the effort and time you expended in creating all these wonderful heirlooms. You are an amazing friend and I am truly blessed to have you in my life. Katie is going to be the best-dressed Craftster baby for certain!  Wink

3  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / Organizing PMs - Gone Wrong on: February 19, 2010 12:33:20 PM
In trying to file my pm's into the appropriate categories, everything keeps going haywire. This has consistently happened before and I'm wondering if there's something I'm doing wrong or something I could do to avoid it.

Each time I try to assign a label to a pm and then try to remove it from the inbox, it's hit-or-miss as to if the pm will actually be in it's designated folder. I just tried cleaning up my folders and now have 7 pages of old messages in my inbox, which previously only had 2. Additionally, all of the pm's are now in random folders.

Any thoughts on what could be causing this? I would give up on organizing them, but this is how I keep track of my swaps that I organize.

Thanks in advance!

Details of swap:
This is a quick and easy swap for Craftsters looking for quick gratification and fun. You will be paired with one partner and will mail to them one medium crafted item (minimum of 2+ hours of crafting time and/or a $20 value). Because we will be sending only one item, please make sure it is a quality item and is a "medium". In the interest of keeping this a low-key swap, please DO NOT oversend to your partner. Many of us are overachievers in swaps and I want to keep this one fun, quick and stress-free.  Wink

PLEASE NOTE THERE IS A RELATIVELY SHORT CRAFTING TIME. Do not sign up if you have any hesitation about mailing your package on time.

1. Please pm your partner within 48 hours of receiving their name. It can be as long or short of a pm as you want, but please do it. This will help me to weed out any potential flakers early on.
2. Please pm your partner and me when you send your item and, if you're sending within the US, please include the DC#.
3. Please include "Quick and Easy" in your pm title whenever you pm me.
4. Posting of photos in the gallery is mandatory. If you know you won't be able to post photos, please inform your partner ahead of time so she can take photos so that we can all ooohhh and aaahhhh at her crafting abilities.
5. I reserve the right to not allow swappers into this swap that have documented issues in their swap feedback such as sending late, sending crappy packages, not posting photos, etc. I'm not being mean - this is to protect all our lovely swappers and to make my organizing experience enjoyable.  Wink

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer - PLEASE TITLE YOUR PM "Quick and Easy Swap Sign-up":

Craftster username -
Email address -

5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Quick and Easy - One Medium Item - NOW IN SIGNUPS!!!! on: February 15, 2010 05:37:43 PM
Anyone in the mood for a quick & easy swap? I'm thinking one crafted medium item based on your partner's likes. And I'd prefer to keep it to a "true" medium item (no going overboard!), which I usually figure is a value of around $20 or two hours of crafting time.

Probably do sign-ups starting asap and ending the evening of February 26. I'd get partners together and pm everyone their partner on Saturday, Feb 27 and we'd have sendouts by March 15. That would give us all two solid weekends of crafting time (plus the weekdays in between), plus would only take up a swap slot for about a month.

Anyone interested?

6  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / I'm almost getting the hang of this glassblowing thing... on: January 11, 2010 01:31:29 PM
Today I picked up my latest batch of creations from the glassblowing studio. Some of 'em I'm really happy with, others I can at least see what I learned in class that day.   Grin

7  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Art/Craft themed scrabble clock on: January 11, 2010 09:34:33 AM
I made this for my partner in the Random Swap. Had a lot of fun trying to brainstorm crafty/artsy words that would fit. Realized after everything was glued on that it's kinda hard to tell time without numbers.  Grin

8  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Handblown Glass Paperweights on: January 11, 2010 09:31:47 AM
Made these to thank the wonderful organizers in the Shop the Swap (alteredmommy, lapoli and loves2experiment) for all their hard work!

9  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / Can't remove label from my pm's on: August 08, 2009 08:01:16 AM
For the past few days, I've been unable to remove the Inbox label from any of my pm's. I keep getting this error.

An Error Has Occurred!
Sorry, 1 messages already had the maximum amount of labels allowed!

Any suggestions?
